Nintendo Labo: VR Kit (the full set)

Yes, Nintendo is getting into VR for the Switch with a Labo cardboard kit. The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit is coming April 12. Here's a look at what's inside the $80 box.

Toy-Con Goggles

The kit has VR goggles, like Google Cardboard, that the Switch pops into. Presto, a VR kit!

Toy-Con Bird

One of the weird included accessories: this bird. What's happening inside bird world?

Toy-Con Blaster

A Blaster add-on seems to turn the whole Switch into a VR bazooka.

Toy-Con Camera

Snap: This appears to be a VR camera. Maybe the game inside is like Pokemon Snap (who remembers that one?).

Yes, you can be a VR elephant. Dreams have become reality.

Toy-Con Wind Pedal

This pedal looks similar to the one in the Labo Vehicle kit, except here... is it creating wind? Or powering something? Why is it a wind pedal?

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit Starter Set

A less expensive $40 kit appears to be Nintendo's way of offsetting the Labo kit's higher prices. The basic kit has the goggles and the Blaster, while the extras will be sold separately in two $20 add-on packs, should you want to add them. We haven't played or checked it out yet, but we hope to soon.
